One of the things we enjoy about visiting different parts of the United States or different parts of the world, is having the opportunity to sample the many different foods that have become iconic for that particular location. The Pacific Northwest has established itself as a source for a wide variety of fresh seafood.
Oysters on the half shell, steamed mussels from Penn Cove on Whidbey Island, crab cakes, salmon, steamed clams in roasted garlic pesto, oyster shooters and fish and chips. All fresh and locally sourced.

The Pike Place Public Market (pics) is arguably one of the most visited spots in Seattle for tourists, but make no mistake it is not just a tourist attraction. The market, opened in 1907, is one of the oldest continuously operating farmer’s markets in the country. It is managed by the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority (PDA).
We had only a one night stop over in Mobile (pics) which only gave us time for a quick drive around and a meal, but more about that in a moment.
